How will this course benefit you?

Formative Assessment is an essential and fundamental element of designing and delivering a cohesive and seamless curriculum. Assessment should be integral to the planning process and it is important that teachers can demonstrate how assessment and summative assessment create for pupils a clear pathway to understanding the progress they are making.

This course focuses on how to build consistency across the whole school, defines the main elements of a high quality assessment system and provides teachers with an opportunity to focus on the skills that support them to challenge, motivate and encourage learning and progression.

A not to be missed ‘deep dive’ into what constitutes positive evidence that assessment has a profound impact on learning.

Teachers use assessment to check pupils’ understanding to inform teaching, and to help pupils embed key concepts, use knowledge fluently and develop their understanding, and not simply memorise disconnected facts.
